Indiana Meals Financial institution is sending reduction to victims of the Georgia twister
Recovery efforts continue in Georgia after last month’s devastating tornado and a Hoosier organization has stepped up to help.
Over 1,700 homes and businesses were destroyed in the storm, and a half load of family boxes arrived in Newnan, Georgia Wednesday morning.
MFB Georgia has also sent groceries to the affected area. MFB sends disaster relief through its partnership with the Salvation Army.

The boxes are assembled, packed and driven to the affected areas by volunteers.
